Capti Solutions for Education

Auditory Preference

Every student has a different learning style. Among those are the three main styles: auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. Those students with an auditory preference find it easier to retain and process information by listening to it. Because an auditory learner understands their subject matter by speaking about and listening to it, they can find traditional teaching methods (i.e. note taking, and silent reading) to be ineffective.

It’s difficult for teachers who are trying to accommodate different learning styles in the classroom. While lectures may help an auditory learner focus on the materials, when it comes time to take the test on paper, they might have a hard time finishing in a timely manner.

Capti’s Assignments feature allows a teacher to create and grade a test right in Capti so that auditory learners can listen to their reference materials, the test questions, and they’re submitted answers before turning in the test. This eliminates the possibility of other students becoming distracted if the teacher had to read the test aloud to the student. Rather, students can choose from a variety of voice tones, accents, and different genders to find the voice they prefer to listen to.

Test-taking can be even more challenging for auditory learners as they may take longer to process visual information.
